There are two huge mistakes that we as Christians are prone to make.
The first one is to misunderstand the truth of Scripture. The world around us likes to redefine truth based upon the prevailing opinions of society. Behaviors that used to be sin are no longer called sin. The existence of judgement and eternity is redefined by philosophers and scholars. Miracles have been reinterpreted as parables.
The second one is to misunderstand the grace of Scripture. The world is also quick to demand justice when people believe that they have been wronged. Grace, mercy, and forgiveness are increasingly in short supply. The fight for tolerance and understanding is becoming more belligerent and disrespectful.
If you misunderstand either one…you have completely missed the heart of God. Which one causes you the most difficulty?
Thanks for listening.
